Invasion of the Sea

Invasion of the Sea
Jules Verne
Scientific Fiction
2 stars

scientific fiction is the perfect description. His stuff sure isn’t scifi. In this novel the French are attempting to make an inland sea in the Sahara desert by digging a canal and are opposed by a tribe of muslim nomads. Basically follows the engineer as he inspects it. Ends with an earthquake making it all happen in one day instead of 5 years. BORING!!!!
